The best Christmas gifts I got this year were handmade.
From my sister and her husband, and from my brother and his wife, we received the basics — salsa, dishcloths (because I haven’t replaced the ones I threw out yet), and a jar or family dinner conversation starters.
From my father-in-law, whose side of the family almost requires a ‘smelt’ or handmade gift, I received a wall rosary with a cross handmade from olive wood in Jerusalem. He assembled the rosary, which we will be moving to a more prominent location in the house.
